Dates to consider or avoid when planning your wedding...

Brides are often surprised when florists, site providers, and other wedding professionals charge additional fees for their services and products for certain wedding dates. Sometimes, the reason to avoid the date is not financially may be because of an event that concurs with your date, or a change in daylight savings time that may cause some complications. The last thing you want to do is inconvenience you, your guests, or your vendors. If you select these dates, then just prepare for the conditions that people may encounter on your selected date.
